When: 2012-10-06

Collection location: Mata da Margaraça, Arganil, Portugal [Click for map]

Who: zaca

No specimen available

British Flora doesn’t consider the species Porpidia albocaerulescens, only referring that most of the British material of this species belongs to P. cinereoatra. I don´t know about the existence of this species in my country, but it seems to me that this material is closer to P. albocaerulescens than to P. cinereoatra. Some similar specimens can be seen at Sharnoff photos (particularly Nº3) and at Ways of Enlichenment.
